Boyband Stereo Kicks, which features Jake Sims from Warmley in South Gloucestershire, have survived a second sing-off in ITV's X Factor.

Louis Walsh and Mel B opted to send home Lola Saunders, while Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell chose to get rid of the group

It meant the decision was thrown back to the public vote, with Lola losing out.

After the sing-off Louis, who mentors Stereo Kicks, said: "It was an amazing sing off. I love Lola and Stereo Kicks you sang your heart out."

Devon teenager Barclay Beales and his band Stereo Kicks are through to the next round of the X Factor.

The eight-piece boy band was in the bottom two last weekend, staying only when Chloe-Jasmine Whichello lost the sing-off.

But the boys turned it around on Saturday’s show, performing a medley of The Beatles classics “Let It Be” and “Hey Jude”, which was enough to see them straight through to next week.

Their success comes after rumours that at least one member would be made to leave the competition after their mentor Louis Walsh admitted that he never wanted the group to have eight members.

But as he introduced them last night he said “Eight boys, and I did say eight – the ultimate octoband.”

Their performance impressed Simon Cowell, who praised the boys for sticking together and added "Any time you want to leave Louis, and come and join me, I'll mentor you."

The revenge of Chloe-Jasmine

X Factor singer Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has revealed she is planning her revenge on Simon Cowell - by naming a new hamster after him and watching it run round in circles.

The 23-year-old model, who went to Wells Cathedral School, lost the sing-off against eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks on last night's show, where the TV mogul told her that she lacked passion.

It meant a double elimination for her mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who also said goodbye to another of her acts Stephanie Nala.

Whichello said she was unhappy that Cowell appeared to be preserving his own acts and then teasing his fellow judges.

She said: "I respect him very much as a businessman. His brainchild of The X Factor is spectacular.

"What I didn't agree with was, he had all of his acts secured and sat down on the panel to intimidate the other judges."

She added: "I'm now about to purchase a hamster, call it Simon Cowell, and it's going to be running around a kennel."

Crediton is backing Barclay Beales

Saturday night promises to be quite an evening for Devon teenager Barclay Beales - as he and his band Stereo Kicks appear in the second of the live X-Factor shows.

It's 80's night on Saturday. Hundreds of people will be voting for him in his hometown of Crediton, as Seth Conway found out when he visited Barclay's old school today:
